This report presents an evaluation of the radiological consequences to man as a result of the nuclear reactors and their associated reactor compartments (six in total) that were scuttled in the Kara Sea from 1965 to 1981. Based on radionuclide inventories and considering several plausible release scenarios from the fuel, the radiological impact to man was calculated using short-range and long-range dispersion models.
